Bright reddish-copper. I wish they would use a more robust glass to serve this in than the modified weizen glass they prefer, but otherwise it looks great. Caramalty, toasted aroma; a fair deal of smokiness up front, fading into a firm, long finish that is malty but dry, and crackerlike. Not the most robust example, but well-structured and with enough smoke to get by.
